60's bands suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hi, just recently I have been really getting into 60's music. I want some suggestions of some bands to listen too. What I would mostly like to listen to from this period would be anything that is psychodelic or blues. Some of the bands that I've been listening too are Ten Years After, The Bluesbreakers, the Yardbirds (of course), Vanilla Fudge, The Small Faces, The Jeff Beck Group, Hendrix, Cream, and many more. Thanks in advance guys.

The Velvet Underground are a very interesting group, I would check them out if I were you. Also, pretty much any Jazz. Miles Davis is considered one of the Jazz masters.

If you don't have The Ultimate Yardbirds CD, that is a great collection.

Also check out Janis Joplin:

Wow, awesome song. Thanks alot.

edit: hur hur, you just said the Bluesbreakers. Sorry about that.

How about The Pretty Things? Their self-titled 1965 album is very blues-based (duh, since there's a bunch of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry songs on it), while their album "S.F. Sorrow" is more psychedelic. Both are good. I love the self-titled a lot, though...they're a lot like the Rolling Stones (which makes sense because Mick and Keith were both in the band before they formed the Stones), but this album sounds a lot more raucous than the Stones' 1965 release, "Out of Our Heads," (except for Satisfaction, of course; that's about as rowdy as it gets).

Oh, and how about "Picturesque Matchstickable Messages from the Status Quo" by (who else) The Status Quo? That's a pretty cool psychedelic album.

Two of my favs: The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. I also like The Moody Blues (more so in the 70's), The Kinks and Traffic.

Terry Reid is quite good. He was also a choice by Jimmy for the singer of Led Zepp. I would recommend Bang Bang and Superlungs.

I would also recommend John Mayall, The Turning Point for the bluesy/jazzy side of the house.

Here's 2 good live albums:

Jefferson Airplane - "Bless it's Pointed Little Head". Recorded at the Fillmore in 1968. It rocks and has some trippy songs. The electric bass work on some songs is absolutely amazing!

Hot Tuna - "Hot Tuna. Recorded at Berkley in 1970. Acoustic blues from the guitarist and bassist from the above group. Lots of traditional blues songs, all great versions. The acoustic bass work on some songs is absolutely amazing!

Mine was going to be The Move. Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan and Roy Wood before ELO came into existence.

A few of my favourites.

The English psychadelic masterpiece - 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn' Pink Floyd, 1967.

And what about The Doors - mixing some psych with blues and various other influences:

Love is definitely one of the greatest 60's bands that I know...

Forever Changes.. An album that everyone should own. There so many great songs such as "The Red Telephone", "You Set The Scene", "Andmoreagain"

The Doors are a must and so is Big Brother and The Holding Company with Janis Joplin.

Wow guys, thanks for all the suggestions. Here's what I've tried so far:

Holding Company

Pretty Things

13th Floor Elevators

Hendrix's "Blues"

And i forgot to mention the doors in the first post.

This is helping me so much, I intend on trying to listen to every band you guys suggest. =) So many ove these bands are bands that I have never heard of(Mostly because I am only 16 years old.)

Thanks again!

:beer: Good call.

I saw Roy at his last gig only a few weeks ago - walked on to rapturous applause, went straight in to California Man, and surely played as well as ever. fantastic :thumbsup:
